Men’s Health Education Rural Van (“Mherv”)

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Batemans Bay, the Rotary Men’s Health Education Rural Van (Mherv) will be visiting Batemans Bay on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th May 2023 to provide free basic health assessments to both men and women.

The van will be located in the northern carpark of Club Catalina on Beach Road, Batemans Bay and will operate from 9.30 AM to 3.30PM on both days. The assessments are free and no appointments are necessary.

Assessments will be provided by Registered Nurse, Bill Power, who travels with the van around New South Wales. Each individual will have their blood pressure, cholesterol level and blood sugar level checked. Bill is also happy to have a quick chat about general health issues.

Rotary estimates that over the last five years, 450 lives have been saved because of Mherv free basic health checks. The Mherv van sees around 3,500 patients each year and more than a few have previously undetected conditions. On average, around 40% require a follow up by a general practitioner.

The Mens Health Education Rural Van (Mherv) is an initiative of Rotary in New South Wales and was originally set-up to focus on issues relating to men’s health. However, both men and women are most welcome to attend a free assessment at Mherv.

“Don’t hesitate to give 10 minutes of your busy day to get a free basic health screen”, says Bill. Literally, “It could save your life”.

Rotary acknowledges the support of the Royal Freemasons Benevolent Institution (RFBI) and Electrodry in making this free service available to the public.
